Full Details

Opportunity to acquire a freehold building plot with planning permission granted offering scope to construct a generous three bedroom contemporary family home with over 2000ft² of accommodation spread over three floors comprising two reception rooms, kitchen, utility, cloaks, three bedrooms and two bathrooms and an integral garage. Situated on the edge of Windermere village, just 10 minutes walk from the village centre and its wide range of amenities, schools and transport links, the building plot will appeal to those wishing to construct a comfortable home specific to their own individual requirements and taste.

Occupying a gently elevated position just behind Park Road/Windermere Park, this small development of just five plots on Lickbarrow Road are positioned with privacy in mind and with each design of house individual. The property is designed and aimed to maximise the west facing position taking in plenty of natural light with the upper floor levels taking full advantage of the sun and views which stretch over the village to the Lakeland fells beyond.

Directions From our Windermere office in the village turn left into Ellerthwaite Road and proceed past the Fire Station to a 'T' junction with the recreation ground facing. Turn right into Park Road and follow this road to the top of the hill, turning left just before Windermere Park into Lickbarrow Road. The new drive for the development will gain access from the bottom of Lickbarrow Road and Plot 1 will be the second plot on the right hand side.

Description Opportunity to acquire a freehold building plot with permission granted for the construction of a new detached three bedroom dwelling, with two bathrooms, two reception rooms, kitchen, utility, cloaks room and a integral garage.

The proposed dwelling is accessed from Lickbarrow off Park Road with a new vehicular driveway going in giving access to five proposed dwellings including No.1. The plot is nestled on the West side of the development and is second right hand plot and occupies gently sloping site with a pleasant outlook over Windermere Park to Claife Heights beyond.

The plot has provisions and ducting in place for mains foul drainage, mains electric, and mains water to all be ducted to the site once the houses are built. The access road which is to be private well be constructed but not be finished completely to avoid damage by construction traffic while the houses are built. The tarmac finish will be added at no cost to the purchaser once the houses are complete.

Planning consent was granted on the 25th September 2015, Reference No. 7/2013/5607. The full consent is for a detached 3 storey 3 bedroom dwelling and is subject to a restriction known as a local occupancy condition. These conditions are commonplace on any new dwelling constructed within the Lake District National Park. This means that the purchaser would either wish to have this as their main residence and would need to fulfil the criteria or for an occupant who rents on a long let to do the same also.

Tenure Freehold. Vacant possession on completion. Council tax band is to be assessed on completion of the dwelling.
